Michelle Obama eclipses Britney in spam charts

SPAMfighter : 22 January, 2009  (Technical Article)
America's new President and his wife hit the top of the spam charts, overtaking such luminaries of junk mail as Paris Hilton
SPAMfighter, the company backed by the world's largest spam fighting community, reveals that for the month of December, Michelle Obama overtook traditional spammer "IT girls" subjects such as Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Angelina Jolie. Out of 1.4 million spam e-mails analyzed in December, SPAMfighter found the soon to be First Lady now tops the list as per the following results:

* Michelle Obama 1,955
* Britney Spears 468
* Paris Hilton 368
* Angelina Jolie 195

However Michelle isn't the only Obama getting the attention. SPAMfighter also found that Barack topped the charts with a whopping 7,186 dedicated spam e-mails in December alone. SPAMfighter predicts Obama related spam is only set to get worse. Commenting on the recent results, Martin Thorborg, the co-founder and CMO of SPAMfighter says, "This is only the tip of the iceberg. As the big inauguration day nears, it's likely we'll see an even bigger increase in Obama related spam."

"E-mail users can beat spammers to the punch, however they must be vigilant," says SPAMfighter. "E-mail users should get their Michelle Obama and celebrity gossip fix from trusted blogs and Web sites rather than risk opening unsolicited e-mails. By clicking on spam, users identify their e-mails as a working address and it is then sold off to more spammers resulting in even more spam. It's important that we work together to help eliminate spam."

SPAMfighter is leading the fight against spam with its 5 million+ users worldwide. To download SPAMFighter's FREE award-winning software, please visit the SPAMfighter website.
